Im in the market for a scope for a savage ML with a Pac-nor barrel (I know smokeless isnt legal in NJ, I have a few and just use them for range fun at this time, although they ARE all black/substitute capable) I have always been a leupold guy, and I want something in the 3-12/4-15 power range. I was seriously considering a zeiss, but at about double the price of a leupold 3(or better) are they really worth the extra expense? Can you really justify the jump from abt $600 to $1200+ for a zeiss, or swarofski? I know for a fact that Leupold is a good quality optic, with good aftermarket customer support. But it just hasnt been proven to me yet that its worth that extra expense, and at this point, im leaning heavily back towards leupold. That extra 5-600 means another addition to the gun safe or some other wish list item. So, for those of you that have those ultra high end optics, are you happy overall with your decision? would you do it over again?
